Every effort was made by the train crew to save the burning car, but the fire had gained such headway it was impossible to save the animals, and all perished but one that accidentally fell out of the open door. The.shipment was consigned to McCreary and Cary, of Omaha. Reynolds had the day aud had a great time on the Fourth: The cele bration was a mostjnteresting one. It began with the singing of patriotic songs, followed by races aud sports of all kinds, and wound up with a grand ball in the eveniug under the auspices of the ladies of Reynolds, who are cer tainly deserving of much credit for theii excellent management and glow ing success of the whole affair. The celebration and dance were largely at tended by people from the surround ing country; a most sumptuous supper was served at the hotel, the tables be ing decorated with large hoquets of rosea and carnations. All who had the pleasure of attending, declared that they had a fine time, and wished the great national holiday came ofteuer. EXPOSITION ITEMS. Somebody has unearthed from the files of the Scientific American this little item of present interest, which was printed in the issue of September 2, 1868: "in cutting some timber in Omaha, a few days since, a bullet was fouud imbedded in the truuk of a rock elm. The grains which had overgrown it show that it must have been deposit ed there 62 years ago, a time when the country had not yet been visited by any white men, except the explorers Lewis and Clark. Heliograph signals are now being flashed from the snow line of Mt Hood to a station near the government build ings on the Lewis aud Clark exposition grounds, Jseventy miles distant. Mt. Hood appears to be but three or four miles away. A squad of United States troops, in command of a lieutenant, has established a signal station near the summit of the grand old peak, and the exposition is in daily communica tion with the mountain. Several par ties of adveuturous people will climb to the summit of Mt. Hood during the summer, as a sort of side trip from Portland. The Fourth of July attendance at the Lewis and Clark exposition was 53,708. This is at least 30 per cent more than the most sauguiue of the officials ex pected. It beats the Fourth of July atteudauoe at the Omaha exposition by nearly 10,000, aud is 14,131 higher than the attendance on the opeuiug day at Portland, June 1. Up to July 4, half a million admissions had been recorded in the thirty-four days of the big fair. This aggregate is far above expecta tions. The attendance is increasing daily, and all indications point to a total that will break every exposition record, considering the neighboring population. The fair will run until October 15. Be.th in Goldfield. "All trouble and inconveuieuce grow ing out of the scarcity of »ater in the new mining camps of Nevada is rapid ly disappearing," remarked Oscar J. Smith, lawyer and capitalist of Reuo. "They have quite as much water in Goldfield now as will satisfy the re quirements of the camp. I was down at Goldfield recently, and noticing a sign on a buildiug which proclaimed the fact that baths were to be had there, I went in and announced that I would like to get a bath. The fellow in charge banded me a ticket aud took my money. " 'Wfcll, see here,' said I, 'I don't want a bath ticket; 1 want a bath.' " 'Oh, you'll get a bath all right,'said said the bathhouse manager. 'Let me see your ticket. No. 813. There are about 812 people ahead of you. Come around in about three or four weeks.'

KNIGHTS of PYTHIAS INSTALLATION Excellent Program Followed by &. Sumptuous Repast and is Most Enjoyable Dance.

They need a new church at Emmett and the Index suggests that if all the men who have used tbe steps of the old Methodist church for sparking pur poses, since it was built, will contribute a dollar each to the buildiug fuud for the new church, the members will not have to go down in their pockets for |a cent. The Caldwell Tribune thinks the en terprise of Nampa is as fresh aud in vigorating as a May morning breeze. Having secured a Mormon beet sugar factory aud a Mormon orator, they are now trying to secure the seat of auti Mormou agitation by inducing Senator Dubois to locate in their midst. You cannot help but admire people who pull for their own town that way.
